who we are

Act Against Torture is a coalition of activists based in the San Francisco Bay Area working to abolish torture and indefinite detention, to end U.S. intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to prevent future wars.

Our work is guided by radical, systemic analysis of war, torture and detention; the connections between these and other forms of oppression are the reason we support other movements for social justice as an integral part of our mission. We use strategic, campaign-based organizing to link individual actions in pusuit of larger goals. We work to build strong coalitions and are committed to democratic and participatory organizing.

Act Against Torture is not affiliated with any party or organization.
